Thursday Night NBA Player Props: Warriors vs. Bucks
Stephen Curry Over 4.5 Three-Point Shots Made
The Warriors will be without Draymond Green for a third consecutive game while he deals with a calf injury. As a result, Steph Curry has been playing extended minutes in his absence. Curry has been averaging 38 minutes per game. I believe tonight is where Curry can take advantage from beyond the arc. The Milwaukee Bucks over the last five games rank in the bottom fourth in opponent three-point shots made and #29 in opponent three-point percentage allowed. If the Warriors want a chance to win this game tonight it will have to be on the back of Curry.
Giannis Antetokounmpo Over 11.5 Rebounds
Giannis Antetokounmpo will have a big edge tonight rebounding against the Golden State Warriors. First, the Warriors have dropped to #21 in the entire league in defensive rebounding percentage. Next, Antetokounmpo this season at home is averaging 12.1 rebounds per game. Furthermore, against Western Conference opponents, Giannis is averaging 13.1 rebounds per game. The Warriors are allowing opposing power forwards to average 15.3 rebounds per game so far this season. Lastly, Giannis has recorded 12 or more rebounds in four of the last six games. Give me the Over!
Klay Thompson Over 0.5 Steals
We saw the return of Klay Thompson against the Cleveland Cavaliers last Sunday. In each of the two games Thompson has played in he has recorded exactly 20 minutes for the Warriors. Furthermore, in each of the two games, Thompson has recorded at least one steal. Defense will be key for the Warriors if they want to win this game tonight. Prior to the injuries Thompson was an elite defender and looks to be providing it again. I will take this prop bet in the game tonight between the Warriors and Bucks and bank on Thompson getting one steal in the 20 minutes he will play.
